  2. Go to Devices, then choose “Echo & Alexa”.

When you have more than one camera to control via your Alexa voice assistant, you’ll need to give each cam a different name to make it easier for the virtual assistant to identify the device you’re talking about.

Use the following instructions to change the device name from the Alexa app. I don’t recommend changing the camera name from the Wyze app because Alexa will have to discover it again.

  1. Open the Alexa app.
  2. Tap Devices at the bottom right of the screen.
  3. Select Cameras at the top of the screen.
  4. Then select the Wyze Cam you want to edit.
